They are just comfortable and very durable. They are true to the military specs. I've the JPeterman version, which is little more civilianized and cut down from the regulation pattern, and I like yours better. The fabric and detail is excellent. A note that one may want to get one size larger than their normal belt size, as the wide cummerbund belt goes around the middle of the waist, over the navel. The pant length is to military spec, to be rolled up over the knee, or down in the field. It's easily hemmed or cuffed. I just roll mine up.

Very good, very fast delivery. (2016-07-17)
Right off the bat, let me say I very much like my shorts.
But two things need work: the buckles, the buckles straps and the belt straps. The buckles are square and thin. They have no sharp edges, but I bet those thin edges and pointed corners can cause fraiying and damage after a while. My old Banana Republics gurkha shorts have buckles made of cylindrical metal, with blunt corners. I've already substituted the originals for these.
As to the buckle straps, these are located a bit too far back, almost behind the hip. Thank Heavens my flexibility is good. I had to twist my trunk quite a bit to fasten the buckle. They should reach the front of the waist bone, at least, to avoid the annoying twist. Regarding the other strap, the eyelets are cloth, unreinforced by grommets. Again, perhaps that's a nod to authenticity. But it can result in tears.
As many reviewers have stated, it's wise to order on or two sizes larger.
I like my shorts. But I won't buy another for a while, to see if these problems are corrected.

Good quality, and seems authentic. They are way too long,so they must be shortened. You might look into that, or size them so that someone could choose an inseam length.

Better and better (2016-06-28)
I was very pleased when I realized the buckles on the shorts have been upgraded since last I bought a pair. Now the Gurkha shorts are perfect. Thanks you!

amazingly fast delivery (2016-05-28)
Yes, the shorts are long, but I'm now past the point where I want tight thigh baring shorts. Cool, comfortable and modest appeals very much to me.

great shorts, fast delivery (2016-05-01)
Just realized I filled in the wrong review. This is the correct review for the Gurkha shorts....

They are a bit big for me, but the 32 was the smallest available. I like that they are very long, and very roomy, very airy. Very cool in the hot desert air where I live. Good cotton, well made, sturdy.

Delivery was very fast, much faster than expected.

great pants, fast delivery! (2016-05-01)
The pants are very well made, solid and comfortable. Good cotton. The tag itches so I had to cut it out. The bottom of the legs is bigger than I'd like, and I'd prefer a bit more flare in the top part, but overall these are a great pair of military style khaki cotton breeches. Despite being sent from UAE, the pants arrived in record time!

Gurkha Shorts (2015-11-05)
First time ordering. Exceeded expectations

Duke (2015-09-02)
Fantastic shorts. Yes, they are long but you can roll them up. These are a true Gurkha. Quality is like that of American made Bill's Khakis who no longer makes this style. Downside is yes the buckles are flimsy but I live in NYC and found a place called M&J Trimming which makes a perfect buckle for these. It is style #46277017. It is in a gunmetal finish and they sell for $2.98 per buckle. It is easy to swap the buckles. these buckles are excellent and I passed the info on to Jerry.

Jerry Please repalce those buckles (2015-07-17)
Third time re-order. They are great except for:

1)I must have back pockets so my local tailor in Boca takes fabric from the inside front pockets and creates back pockets. Voila!

2)As discussed last go 'round ... the buckles are quite 'cheezy'. I have had them replaced by sourcing them out from a novelty shop in NY. Brass buckles that work quite well. It would be worth charging an extra $5 to have a higher quality buckle.

3)So, I had the tailor also add a 1" piece of fabric in the waist at reat as the size 34 'works' BUT creates a pull at the front of shorts where the buttons snap up.

So these are the most expensive shorts I now own. But I LOVE them regardless. No belt needed. Good look!

Excellent reproductions (2015-06-11)
Just ordered my second pair. An excellent product at a great price. Complaints about styling obviously miss the point of a reproduction!

Without an original on hand, it's hard to know exactly where the waist straps should be "zeroed out," but I find on mine that they're properly closed only on the tightest holes. I wonder if, as on regular belts, the "sized" hole shouldn't be the middle one? Buckles could be a bit better, but no biggie.

If you ever discontinue these, please give us all plenty of warning so we can lay in lifetime supplies.

Andrew - US
This is my second pair GREAT service fast. Just a little disappointed the buckle is silver and not brass plus a little longer than the last pair. These are far and away the best shorts I own and will be ordering another pair for Father's Day next month.

Could not believe how fast they arrived. Just waiting for it to warm up so I can wear them.

Extremely positive experience (2015-01-26)
Your selections are incredible. Ecstatic to find original ghurka shorts. Ordering was very easy and receipt was quick, with great communication and informative tracking info. A phone call re: returning items was very positive - prompt response, polite and informative answers. Extremely easy to return and exchange. Overall extremely positive experience. Thank you - keep up the good work. I have told others.

I liked these shorts enough to buy a second pair. Well made, nice fabric, buckles easily replaced. Wish they had back pockets or a cargo pocket. Super fast shipping.

Great (2014-09-16)
It's a purchase for my friend. He had to shorten it a few inches but it's very well made he says.

Great shorts (2014-08-25)
These shorts fit great and are well made. I am very pleased with them overall. The only reason they did not garner a 5 star rating is that they do not have back pockets (which I knew when ordering them, and I believe the original shorts did not have back pockets either). I prefer to have back pockets, and if these had them I would give them an absolutely perfect rating because they are very comfortable, look good, and should last a long time because they are well-made.

for years. Cheers

good stuff (2014-06-27)
My second pair of these shorts. They are the best made shorts that I own. The only improvement I would suggest to the manufacturer is replace the button fly with a zipper.

UK GURKHA SHORTS (2014-05-21)

Gurkha Shorts (2014-05-05)
I ordered one size up from my regular waist size and after washing and drying they fit perfectly. A bit long, they were meant to be rolled up. I like them a lot. I would say I wish the eyelets in the belts had grommets in them, that would be a big plus I think down the road.

9/10 (2014-03-26)
After reading the comments, I knew what to expect. Ordered a size larger and expected them to need tailoring. Great value for the money, will definitely be ordering more from the site.

Gurkha shorts (2014-02-04)
Very timely delivery. Don't get cheap on materials and workmanship. Happy to pay more for quality item. Especially for unique items like Gurka shorts. Thought buckles were cheaply made material. Had same shorts few years ago and felt they were better made. Please keep standards up. Most people will pay for what they really want. You are not a discount site.

Great (2013-07-20)
As many have indicated, I received the gurkha shorts very quickly. The fabric is great, they were about 3 1/2" too long, but that is easily corrected and customized. I did order UP one size which is advisable -- esp after washing and drying. Nonetheless, I am very happy with them, and they are handsome and not easy to find either. As certain reviewers indicated, the side clips might require a little smoothing off to not wear on the waist ties, but so what? The shorts are great for the price and smart looking. This company is a find as far as I am concerned ... and I have their bush jacket as well. Thanks

Gurkha shorts (2013-05-27)
I'm 6 foot 3 and a true 32 waist. Size 32 Gurkha sorts are a perfect fit. Only negative is the buckles which are a bit flimsy. As always with WPG, good quality overall and amazingly fast shipping.

UK Gurkha Shorts (2013-04-25)
Well made, but length too long - way too long! Would be nice if you could get it with a zipper rather than buttons.

Great service - received package much quicker than I was lead to believe.

Great Shorts (2013-04-24)
This is the second pair I've ordered from WPG for my husband who enjoys them much. The craftmenship/material is absolutely great. I must add the service from WPG is as always, outstanding.

Quality (2013-01-12)
My husband has scoured the planet for many years trying to find his Gurkha (replica) shorts he wore in the 1970's - WPG to the rescue! Adjustable waist and long length (traditionally Gurhkas are rolled and cuffed at the hem to your preference) -- but if you're in between sizes you should order the next size up. As a last minute Christmas gift these shorts were here lickity-split and under the tree for Christmas -- thank you, WPG!

Ghurka shorts (2012-10-11)
These are the second pair that I've ordered. The first one was a little too big, so I re-ordered a size smaller. As before, I love these (and will wear the larger shorts when I'm old and fatter).

Hada - US
Ghurka Shorts (2012-09-17)
Very well made, and the material is nice as well. Reminds me of the ones I had in the 70's. 80's. Great service and super fast shipping. A pleasure to do business with.

I will be ordering a few more pairs soon!
